First London MQG meeting

The London Modern Quilt Guild had its first meeting today! We met in Soho at Le Pain Quotidien and afterward some of us wandered over to Liberty to shop for fabric – would have been rude not to…

We have a great group and it was a really fun meeting. We planned our dates for the year and chose committees, and everyone had loads of ideas. Our next meeting will be on 3rd February so get in touch if you’d like to join us.

In other news, you can also now find our guild on Flickr! There are already quite a few active threads going about upcoming events and fabric shop recommendations. Stop by and say hi!
